Opening SMS files

Did your computer fail to open a SMS file? We explain what SMS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your SMS files.

What is a SMS file?

Files with the .sms extension usually contain SMS text messages that have been sent and received by a Sony Ericsson cell phone. When a user exports the messages from the cell phone to their computer, the files are saved with the .sms file extension. The SMS files are saved in a text-based format.

The .sms file extension is also used for Sega Master System emulator ROM image files, Microsoft package definition files, StarPlayer files, Warcraft 2 map files, Train Simulator sound management system files, OpenOffice.org Math application formula document template files and Netscape PHYSICON Interactive plug-in files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
